Internet Use and its Correlation with Psychiatric Symptoms

The addictive use of internet increases the rates of affective and anxiety disorders. The “Compulsive Internet Use Scale" (CIUS) provides a promising conceptualization for the assessment of compulsive internet use behaviour. The present study was based on the investigation of psychopathological abnormalities in a student’s sample with high values on the CIUS. In addition to the CIUS, depressive and manic episodes, quality of life and psychopathological abnormalities were explored. And at last, from the study it is concluded that Compulsive internet use is related to increased psychopathological abnormalities current and lifetime.
